“So… have you had much work on recently?”
This is something I’ve been asked countless times, not just by friends, but from guests at events and people interested in booking a close up magician. So I thought I would take a moment to calculate and share some interesting statistics from the last couple of months.
In July and August alone…
I was hired to perform close up magic at 27 different events in the last 2 months! That averages out at around 3 and a third events per week, although the majority were obviously at weekends.
Out of those 27, I was performing as a wedding magician on 10 different couples big days, an adult Birthday party magician at 8 events, a night club magician on 3 different occasions, wedding anniversary magician on a few other dates, as well as a corporate magician, engagement party magician and even as a Christening magician!
So how many scenic drives has your new car had?
“You guys did an excellent job on the dance floor and you did a fantastic job as a magician. People are talking about you still!” – Curt Johnson
These events have included performances as far as Gorleston-on-sea in Great Yarmouth for a 40th Birthday party where I was hired to perform magic followed by a breakdance show with my crew at a beautiful location next to the best British beach I’ve ever seen – this 5+ hour journey required an overnight stay! Another close up magician slot followed by a breakdance show combo was for an Envision event at Leeds City Museum.
“Oliver is professional, full of energy and cool. Not only has he provided us with excellent customer service but he also made our events pretty funky and special!” – Laurie Clemenceau – Envision Co-Ordinator
Night Club Magician – Performing at Mission in Leeds
I’ve also entertained at Entourage night club in Manchester, weddings in Richmond, Great Broughton in Middlesbrough, The Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate, Rothwell in Leeds, Halifax, The Waterton Park Hotel at Walton Hall in Wakefield (one of my favourite venues!), Brighouse, Huddersfield, a couple of Asian weddings – one of which at the Craiglands Hotel in Ilkley (another favourite venue!), a close up magic show in Giggleswick, a party in Whitby, a nightclub in Bradford, as well as several events in and around Leeds! It was nice to be back to my home town of Horsforth in Leeds for a joint 50th and 21st Birthday party too!
Wedding Magician in Tunstall, Richmond – North Yorkshire
I was actually booked as a surprise for several of these events – a surprise magician seems to be a really popular idea at the moment and always goes down really well!
Of course every single event was enormous fun, I met a lot of fantastic people and I’ve been encouraged to push even harder to learn new and exciting magic to get great reactions from the guests!
And the last statistic:
I received 100% positive feedback from the people who booked me 🙂 including emails of thanks from very satisfied Brides & Grooms and testimonials from ecstatic clients on my Feedback page as well as my Google+ Corporate & Wedding Magician page!
So that’s mostly what I’ve been up to in this none existent summer – having a totally awesome time amazing the heck out of, what must have been, thousands of people at plenty of different events!
Coming up this week I’ll be performing office magic as a corporate magician for O2 again in Leeds for their Guru department’s 1st Anniversary, a surprise wedding magician in Bradford (shhhhh, don’t tell them) and adding a touch of my magic to a 50th Birthday party in Chapel Allerton!
So now you know I’ve got plenty of performance experience up my sleeves (but nothing else, honest) and am a full time professional close up magician – you know you can trust me as your specialist close up magician.
I’m expecting Christmas party magician season this year to be even busier than these last 2 months so if you’re in need of something different to break the ice and give your guests/staff something fun to chat about…
Add a sprinkle of awesomeness to your event
